What’s most disturbing is the slimy way this southern gentleman tries to slither away from his fellow snakes by talking about how he’s done everything possible to make the theft of voting rights fair. He’s sought all the permission possible to demonstrate the cleanliness and fairness of his state’s destruction of voting rights (already registered voters must now show photos of themselves to vote otherwise don’t bother showing up even though you are a citizen who has already registered). And to top it off he thinks, like the character Bele in an episode of Star Trek, who thought it was obvious that he was superior because he was white on the left side of his body and his enemy was black on the left side of his body, it should be obvious that Mississippi is not like Texas or those other photo ID states. He actually thinks that simply because there are no suits filed against Mississippi, yet, then what Mississippi has done is fair and honest, that Mississippi is superior. that because of superficial attributes, Mississippi is really substantially different from the other disenfranchisement extremists.
And it suits Mr. Hosemann’ s ignorance in the service neo-confederate-voter disenfranchisement to not address Professor Alan Draper’s reminder:
“ Less than 10% of voting age whites in Mississippi do not have a driver’s license while almost 30% of voting age blacks are without one. That is, eligible black voters are three times as likely as whites to lack the most common form of government-issued ID required to vote.”
Mr. Hosemann talks about people who showed up to vote not the pool of eligible voters. No if he were to be honest, Mr. Hosemann would admit that his efforts are most pernicious to those who aren’t colored right.
